Bounce House Rental Ideas 

Does your Party Rental company help with the selection of your event items? Knowing and asking about the participant age group and activity level can make the difference.  This is important in selecting the right inflatable, bounce house rental or obstacle course rental.

Starwalk of Dallas has your bounce house rental ideas ready for your next event.

Toddler Bounce House Rental Ideas

For instance, 1 to 3 year olds enjoy the Jungle Toddler with bright colors and small ride ons>  One example is the Toddler Jungle Bounce House.

Parents are able to easily view their little ones from the top.  This allows the little ones to have freedom but also wave back to their parents.   Other bounce houses can be used for toddlers. Just make sure that kids of the same age are together.

Getting into and out of a bounce house can be tricky for toddlers. If there is not an outer inflatable step, check for a safety mat.

Toddler’s like to be independent. Bounce houses give them their freedom to roam.  I do not usually suggested our obstacle courses except the Party 3 n 1 for toddlers.   The other obstacle courses are too big for the toddler crowd.

Other bounce house rental ideas for older toddlers is the Princess Castle combo.   The Princess Castle Combo can be used with or without water.  For the boys, the Pirate Castle Combo can be used wet or dry and has the same features as the Princess Castle Combo.

Preschool Bounce House Selections

Consequently,  the 3 to 6 age crowd enjoy their independence.  But, the success of doing it themselves on our Party 3 and 1 a bounce house rental is great.  Our kid’s obstacle course combines an obstacle course scaled for the younger crowd.

For bigger events, a combo bouncer like our Wizard 4n1 provides the bounce house with slide for more play area and fun. One of my favorites for this age is the Castle Combo.  It has a good viewing area. It also has a small slide and plenty of bounce surface.

An elementary school favorite is the Delta Force Obstacle Course. The Delta Force is 45 feet long.  It is filled with a lot of different obstacles and slides.  I hope you are limber for this one. It will make you duck down, climb over and slide down. These are all great bounce house rental ideas.

Most combo bouncers work well for the pre-school age child.  The Wizard Combo bounce house is also good for this age group.

Elementary School Obstacle Course Rentals and Combo Bouncers

The hardest thing about selecting an obstacle course or bounce house for elementary schools is the different ages and challenges for the kids. For the younger elementary school kids, a combo bouncer or obstacle course tailored for this crowd is a highlight for these kids.

Most important is to consider the ability of the younger kids to complete an activity with limited assistance in order to feel that sense of accomplishment.

Even though an obstacle course may look neat, keep in mind the time and attention span in completing the activity.   In addition to obstacle course and bounce house inflatables, carnival games, balloon pop games and interactive games with lights and sensors are fun for this age group.

The Balloon Pop Game is a great option for elementary schools. Kids use a bike pump to inflate the balloons. They race to pump up the balloons.  Then, when the balloon pops, they are so excited.  You can even add water to the balloons for a great field day water balloon event.

The Galaxy Games is one of the bounce house rental ideas that is great for elementary school kids.  It has a ball pit like Hungry Hippo. The Galaxy Games also has basketball hoops and a big bounce house floor.  It also has vests that turn it into a tug-o-war or bungee run for older kids.  Add Interactive Play Light System and the kids get to chase the color changing lights around the inflatable.  So many things to do in one game.

Middle School and High School Party Rentals

The Middle school and high schoolers also like the sports inflatables like the oversized First Down Football and Double Hoop Zone.   They like to show off their sports ability.  This big inflatables show it off in a big way.   The 27 foot Blue Crush water slide is also a favorite at middle school and high school events.

Large obstacle courses can also manage a large crowd with a throughput of around 300 kids per hour.

At graduation parties and field days, our cash cube rental is a hot item.  The cube is filled with paper money or tickets and prizes are given out for a certain amount of money. Sometimes, tickets with different items on the back are put into the money machine.

The kids love to use the play money to bid on prizes.  They also like to see the prizes that they win on the back of the cards. They really like leaving the event with something extra, even if it is a small toy.

Bounce House Rental Ideas Wipeout Inflatable

Teen and Adult Obstacle Courses 

Adults also need to have their own bounce house rental ideas. Adults also get into the action on the rock wall and adult sized inflatables such as our giant wrecking ball game and our extra long Boot Camp.  The latest craze for the adult set is a wipeout game that includes a mechanical boom requiring skills in jumping and ducking or the wrecking ball option that tests balance, strength and agility.

Along with interactive games, Slip and slides,  dunk tank rentals, cash cube or money machines are often great party ideas.  Just don’t forget the margarita machine for great drinks

Rental Season Breakdown

Water slides are typically great event rentals from April to September in North Texas.  The Waterslides can range in size from 18 feet for the 4 to 12 year olds.  Our largest water slides is the popular 27 feet tall water slide with slip and slide attached for the adventurous 8 year old to adult.

During the summer, items like obstacle courses, dry slides and bounce houses can get extremely hot and should be utilized with caution. We have had events in the late afternoon during the summer that have been too hot for some dry slides.

Water slides can be used throughout the summer time.  The margarita machine is also a summer favorite. Of course, the margarita machine is a favorite any time of the year.

For a summer kids birthday party, pair a 18 foot to 22 foot waterslide water slide with a cotton candy machine for  loads of fun.  The adults can enjoy the margarita machine and popcorn machine while the kids enjoy the water fun on the slide.

For parks and other places where a water slide can not be used, we have covered alternate bounce house rental ideas.

During the winter, the cash cube / money machine is really popular. Just remember that the cash cube can be used with real or fake money, coupons or tickets.  Carnival games are also very popular during the winter season.  Many of our bounce houses and most obstacle course will fit into school gyms.

Starwalk of Dallas will work with you to select the right bounce house and obstacle courses for your event.

Plan ahead for Potential Weather Events

Sometimes having an alternate plan for weather can be easier than you think.   In most cases, bounce houses, water slides, zip lines and obstacle courses have limitations when it comes to rain and wind.  Some of our alternative bounce house rental ideas include indoor back up plans.

For example, when winds are sustained above 20 mph or gusts are stronger than 20 miles per hour,  inflatables can become dangerous and will need to be let down or not setup.

Most larger party rental companies like Starwalk of Dallas will have the flexibility and inventory to move an outdoor event indoors if you have a little flexibility on the items for your event.

If an alternative plan for your bounce house rental ideas is needed. It is best to make plans up front to make sure to know the specific requirements at the alternate location.  You need to know power availability, ceiling height, size of indoor facility in advance.  If needed,  make the call early enough to give the party rental company time to load and setup the modified party rental items.  This  is the best way to  make your bounce house rental ideas come to life.

Adding the Extras to your Party

We have other things to add to our great bounce house rental ideas.  Snow cones are a great addition to any party but to make your event extra special, invite a Kona Ice truck to your event.
